Borisal Liquor & Wine
468 4th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215
They have a very diverse Gevever selection. I wanted to send few bottles to my friends in the USA but most online stores do not have some of my favorite Dutch brands. I was referred to DrinkUpNY by want of our local brands in Amsterdam. Though their website does not accept non-US credit cards, I was able to place order over the phone, paid via PayPal and the bottles were delivered in less than a week!

Have been looking for the Cocchi Americano for a while. A bartender in Chicago told me about drinkupny. What a great selection they have. Ordered at 11AM with few more items to qualify for free shipping and received shipping confirmation within 4 hours and the package was at my door step within 2 days.

Had a problem with an incomplete order on the DRINKUPNY website. Customer service reps would not respond to emails or return phone calls. Had to dispute charge with Visa and the owner with a thick indian(?) accent was angry and hostile on phone. Only when I disputed the charge did the order get completed. There are other fine retail outlets that would better serve your needs.

Made an online order via this store's website (DrinkUpNY). Two days later I began having drafts from my checking account from random gas stations all over NY (Brooklyn, Long Island, Manhattan)... amount has totaled to almost $1000.
I live in TEXAS and still had my actual card. The store claims it was no one from their company however I find it to be a big coincidence these charges were from the same area as this liquor store and I don't live anywhere close. I used PayPal so I thought I was protected however I think you need to beware of sending this company your information.

Very conveniently located, much improved selection over the last year, generally friendly. Their prices tend to be a couple bucks higher than Bay River on 5th Ave b/t 14th and 15th or Slope Cellars up on 7th Ave. Their website, drinkupny is slow and wasn't working right--repeatedly failed to validate any credit cards. A discount is offered when you buy on line so I thought I'd try it. When I got to the store and asked for the discount ($4 off a $23 bottle) the guy at the register pulled the bottle through the window and got on the phone for a social call and ignored me until I had to go. Promising place but disappointing experience.

I always get my dinner wine here, as well as all liquor for get togethers. Tony and his wife are great--really nice, always ready with suggestions if needed. You can't beat the prices here in this unpretentious shop, accompanied by a good-sized selection. This place is great!
